Mystery Quilt Top Done!

This is so exciting.  I’ve finished my first large quilt top.  This was a mystery quilt.  I used the Sakura fabrics I think from R&R.  I put the borders on Saturday.  There is a light border and a 10 inch dark border.  I have a beautiful fabric for the backing.  This baby is getting professionally quilted.  It’s a large Queen Size and I plan on using it on my bed.

Here are some pictures.  It was hard getting the whole quilt top into one picture.

Here’s a closeup of the corner.  You can’t tell but these fabrics are all metallic etched.  It’s gorgeous!

Here’s a closeup of one of the blocks.  There are 12 in total.  I love how the sashing also forms stars.

This was a major accomplishment for me!  There were 6 parts to this mystery and it was a big job, but it’s done!  Well it’s not quite a quilt yet but it will be!

I also did a little more quilting yesterday.  I’m totally into my Designer Mystery Quilt where are the fabrics are from Moda Glace.

Here’s Block 3.  It wasn’t a hard block but the piecing was intricate.

On the stitching front I’ve actually made some progress.  I don’t have pictures yet.

I FINALLY finished fixing my class piece Sweet Rose Bag by Cherished Stitches and started to make some progress on the stitching.  It had me in such a slump.  I think I was able to salvage it so that I will still have enough silk to finish the piece.  The rose in the center is almost done.  I also worked on Sampler Cove Spanish Rouge.  The second band takes a lot of time.  It’s not hard but there are a lot of fractional stitches and a lot of backstitch.  It’s just a little tedious and all done on 40 ct.  I’ll post pictures when I have more done.
